I got up on September 27th at 7:00 am, after a good night’s sleep. Bob got up about an hour later. Shortly after 9:00 am we drove to the nearby Confluence Food Market handpicked up a few groceries. Back “home” Bob made us breakfast — scrambled eggs, sausage links and orange juice.
Around 10:00 am we left on a bicycle ride, which you may find details and photographs of by clicking here. This blog post begins where the bicycling blog post ends.
Shortly before 3:00 pm Bob returned to Ohiopyle from Confluence. I met Bob in the Ohiopyle State Park parking lot. Bob loaded my bicycle on the carrier. Then, we walked back to the Ohiopyle Falls overlook for one last look.
Nearby the falls overlook we happened upon a cat.
Tonto is not an ordinary cat. There are many articles on the Internet about Tonto. Click here for one of the articles I found about Tonto.
On our way back “home” from Ohiopyle we visited three sites — Cucumber Falls, Baughman Rock Overlook and Youghiogheny Dam.
We hiked down to Cucumber Falls. Thankfully the hike wasn’t too far, as my knee still hurt from our earlier bicycle ride.
The waterfall was OK, but I was disappointed that the water flow was low.
All we saw from Baughman Rock were trees. The view from there is supposed to be Pennsylvania’s deepest gorge. We didn’t see the gorge; all we saw were trees.
The view was disappointing, after hiking up Baughman Rock’s steep face. That hike was painful for me. My knee complained loudly! The view from Baughman Rock will be beautiful, when the leaves change color. When the trees shed their leaves I believe, then, the gorge will be seen.
Our last stop before returning “home” was at Youghiogheny Dam.
We drove across the dam and back.
We returned to our Airbnb, the Birdhouse Inn Confluence, around 4:45 pm. We spent rest of the afternoon and evening at ”home” relaxing and allowing my knee time to recuperate.
